I’m about to introduce you to the fudge that is going to end your diet.

Okay, let’s not look at it that way. Let’s say, let me introduce you to your winter blubber. The dessert that is going to bring you to your knees and make you beg for mercy. The dessert that is so good, you won’t need to buy a winter coat.

You’ve met Cookie Butter, right?

If you have been following me over the last few months, you know that I’ve sort of become a Cookie Butter addict. I considered looking for a 12 step program and then realized that it just wasn’t a habit that I wanted to kick.

The number one most popular recipe on my blog that I still see getting pinned all over Pinterest is Sugar Cookie Cookie Butter Bars that has this absolutely decadent and delicious layer of Cookie Butter frosting. It is true that the recipe calls for an obscene amount of butter, but . . . it’s worth it.

Around my birthday I made a martini out of Cookie Butter! The Cookie Butter Milkshaketini!  {Hello, my blog is Wine & Glue . . . heavy on the wine, light on the crafting.}  Because when you turn 32, you need a dessert that packs a punch. And I made a virgin version (say that 82 times fast after drinking a Cookie Butter Milkshaketini) too!

I took a more grown up approach and gave you Cookie Butter with breakfast with these Cookie Butter Biscotti.

And then there’s the very first Cookie Butter recipe that I ever made . . . Biscoff Butterscotch Apple Pie with Sugar Cookie Crust. It is the ultimate delicious sugar rush. It’s like Apple Pie on crack. It’s awesome. And the Cookie Butter and butterscotch pair together so deliciously well.

That pie was the inspiration for this recipe! Butterscotch and Cookie Butter are soul mates, and this fudge is their sweet little love child.

Each time I post a Cookie Butter recipe, I get questions about what is Cookie Butter and where you can find it. So Cookie Butter is a lot like it sounds, sort of like peanut butter, only you take out the peanuts and you sub in a delicious gingerish cookie. You know those Biscoff cookies that you get on airplanes? Yumm. Hand me the jar and the spoon and leave me alone with an unwatched season of Modern Family, please and thank you.

Where to buy it? You can find it as Cookie Butter at Trader Joes. You can find it as Biscoff Spread at Target, Walgreens, and WalMart. If all else fails, you can buy it on Amazon. I’m not kidding, and yes, it is worth it.

  1. Linda Snodgrass says

    I have never heard of cookie butter. Where does one find this product?

  2. Carol says

    This was most delish. My only negative is I wish I had known how long to cook it because mine was a little loose and not really firm enough to cut into squares even after refrigeration. Perhaps I should have cooked it to a certain candy thermometer temperature. Would probably make again if I knew. That being said, the flavor was wonderful. Daughter and grands loved it. Koudos!

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hi Carol, this recipe isn’t really cooked . . . . it’s just a matter of melting things together, so it’s not something a candy thermometer will fix. Are you sure you used sweetened condensed milk and not evaporated milk?

  3. Juju says

    After the fudge sets, does it have to be kept in the refrigerator?
    Not a fan of cold fudge.

    • Lisa Longley says

      I don’t keep mine in the fridge!

  4. Debra Mann says

    What is cookie butter?…..Where can I get it?…Or is it something I have to make myself?

    • Lisa Longley says

      It’s like peanut butter, but instead of peanuts you use cookies! You can find it at Trader Joes, or they sell Biscoff Spread at a lot of grocery stores now.

  5. Ann says

    I live in the uk never heard of cookie butter or seen can I use something else to make the fudge

    • Lisa Longley says

      Peanut butter would be a good substation. You might be able to find Biscoff Butter. It’s the same thing as Cookie Butter and I’m pretty sure it originated in Europe, though I could be wrong.

  6. Sonya says

    I’ve made this for Christmas gifts and it’s delish. I find that adding a pinch of sea salt to the recipe takes it up a notch! A spattering of flaked salt on top adds flavor and visual interest too.

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m so glad you like it, Sonya!

  7. Rebecca says

    Absolutely love ready you and your recipe are fantastic!

  8. Mary P. says

    Is that right only 4 ingredients for the Butterscotch Fudge? Has anyone tried it & if so how did it come out?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Correct, it is only four ingredients.

  9. Maryann Gerber says

    I want to make these caramels but I’m not seeing any Instructions for them?

    • Lisa Longley says

      This is actually a recipe for fudge and you can find the full instructions at the bottom of the post. Enjoy!

  10. Janet Wegmiller says

    Is cookie butter different than regular salted butter?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Cookie butter isn’t really butter at all. It is more like peanut butter. Like this: https://amzn.to/3rsHYcM
